Alaska Airlines Offers New Flight from San Antonio to Seattle

Rich Stinson |

San Antonio (January 2, 2019) – Alaska Airlines is expanding its daily nonstop service from San Antonio International Airport (SAT) to Seattle, Washington.  Service to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) will be provided twice-daily beginning on July 16, operating on a 178-seat B737-900 aircraft.

“We are excited about the additional flight, because Seattle has been an underserved market and is quickly growing,” said Russ Handy, Aviation Director for the City of San Antonio. “This new service will allow more access to Seattle and the entire Alaska Airlines network.”  

Seattle is one of the fastest growing markets in the region and over 166,000 passengers fly between SAT and SEA each year. San Antonio and Seattle share common trade and business interests that complement both cities and their economic development, especially in the areas of high-tech, bioscience, advanced manufacturing and clean energy.

Alaska Airlines launched its current daily, non-stop service from SAT to SEA in 2012.  Over the years, this market has seen a steady increase in demand.  In 2018 alone, market demand for air service from SAT to SEA increased by 11%, driving Alaska to add this new, additional daily, non-stop service. 

This new flight will depart SAT at 6:45am and arrive in Seattle at 9:05am. The return flight will depart Seattle at 5:45pm and arrive in San Antonio at 11:55pm. This will compliment Alaska’s current service, with a SEA departure of 11:50 and arrival to SAT at 5:50. Its return departs SAT at 6:55 PM and arrives to SEA at 9:30 PM.
